Description

NGC authenticated and graded VF Details. Steel gray and olive with light porosity and granularity. There is also a scuff on the dentils/rim between UNITED and STATES. Full legends, sharper than most examples of these rare varieties. As noted by HA ‘Dr. Manley writes, “most survivors are in very low grades.” He theorizes that the heavy horizontal bisecting crack on the obverse die occurred as the Liberty punch was entered by the die sinker, who then decided not to add the pole since it was unlikely that the die would ever be used. It was, but not many were made. The 1796 half cent has a Guide Book mintage of only 1,390 pieces. There are only two varieties for the date. The No Pole C-1 is even rarer than the With Pole C-2, and both are keys to the half cent series.’
